I just got finished installing new forum headers for the 40 Series, 70 Series New, 70 Series Old, C70, 60-series and 80-series Forums. <P>Here in the office, we like the look of the cars isolated on a white background. Trouble is, that's not overly easy to find on some of the older cars, but we'll update as we go. Let me know if you guys find a good source for cars like that (isolated on white background) for use in other forums.

I was actually trying to do one of those for the 200 series forum a while back (not fair that VWvortex had them and we didn't!), but I never got around to finishing, or even bringing up the topic. Here's what I got so far. At least the picture should be usable, and after all, it is the <I>perfect</I> 240.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.geocities.com/towerymt/200forum.txt"> <P>PS: email me if you want the picture. I couldn't access my usual pic host site, and I don't think the .txt extension will allow this image to be saved properly.<P>

Actually, I'd like that third one the most, even though the blue/green color isn't my favorite. The 350 Chevy engine more than makes up for that. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>This is probably my favorite blue brick (large pics, so I linked them):<P><A HREF="http://www.volvonet.org/tpc/gallery2/bo2.jpg" TARGET=_blank>drivers side</A><BR><A HREF="http://www.volvonet.org/tpc/gallery2/bo1.jpg" TARGET=_blank>passengers side</A><P>I think my new favorite color is Dark Grey Mettalic:<P><A HREF="http://www.volvonet.org/tpc/feature/jts1.jpg" TARGET=_blank>Finnish '82 244 Turbo sleeper</A><P>

We added Vintage, 200-series and Car Lounge headers. I'm trying to keep with using images that are studio shots as, even though they are smaller, they look better. I had a P1800 that I isolated (not from the studio shot) and it ended up not looking that great. I want to try to keep with that. Regarding the 250 above, I don't know who has copyright to that photo, so if I can, I want to stick with either Swedespeed's own photos or official Volvo photos, which is what all of our headers except for Car Lounge are using.

I may use the 745 pic. Thanks. I found a pic of that recliner from the S80 commercial on TV. I may use that depending on how well it scans in. It's from a Volvo owner's mag, and they already said I can use material from that.<P>George

A few more have been added, namely: Motorsport, General Volvo, Wheels & Tires, Audio, Suggestions, Events & Get Togethers, Detailing, & Testing. I'm going to see if I can clean up that 745 photo. It's look pretty cool.<p>[This message has been edited by [email protected] (edited 12-19-2001).]
